The video was produced by Project Zero, an organisation that finds and shares models that improve the daily lives and legal rights of all persons with disabilities worldwide. According to Project Zero, children like Vanessa "often experience communication barriers, and data suggests that as a result they experience significant disadvantages, including: diminished rates of school attendance, retention, and advancement; lower rates of employment; increased poverty; and poor access to health care and assistive devices. Furthermore, governments and service providers do not seek the views of children with disabilities because they are often viewed as too hard to engage." In response, Project Zero has been developing ways to allow children with disabilities to communicate about their life priorities and about human rights issues affecting them,  using information and communications technology (ICT) and other resources. dailyvanuatu | February 7, 2016 at 12:00 pm | Tags: children, disability, Vanuatu | Categories: Video | URL: http://wp.me/p2A4RK-RK Comment    See all comments Unsubscribe to no longer receive posts from Vanuatu Daily Digest.
